Kam Chancellor Mistaken For Robber At Gym

Super Bowl champ and four-time Pro Bowler  Kam Chancellor was disgusted this week when he went to a gym with hopes of purchasing it, and had the cops called on him.

The Seattle Times reports:

Redmond police on Wednesday night confirmed that Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was involved in an incident that led to a 911 call at the Redmond Athletic Club.

The incident first came to light when Chancellor tweeted Wednesday night that two women had reported him to police because he was checking out the gym, which closed for business Monday. He said he was interested in buying it.

Becky Range, the public information officer for the Redmond Police Department, described the incident as a misunderstanding.

Range confirmed that a 911 call from the club was made to Redmond police at 4:25 p.,Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 4.53.48 PMScreen Shot 2016-03-03 at 4.56.49 PM

Range said Chancellor was among five adults who, according to the club employee, were outside, banging on the door and looking in the window.

“The employees thought the five individuals were trying to gain entry into the facility,’’ Range said. Range said the employees “felt unsettled’’ and called the police.

The club had lost its lease and closed Monday.

Range said Redmond police officers arrived as Chancellor and four other individuals were leaving.

“It was a positive interaction,’’ Range said. “They (the officers) said, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’ and that’s when the group said they were just here to check out the facility. They were really easy to talk to, and they said our officers were really nice and they left without incident and no police report was filed.’’

Chancellor has run fitness boot camps for women in past off-season.

Kam is rightfully perturbed by the incident and added some more heated tweets to his account.
